ESI 3 Week Program

December 4 @ 10:00 am - December 18 @ 10:45 am

Good communication is more than learning how to talk. Communication also includes interacting, noticing and engaging with those around them, and “hanging in” or persisting when faced with challenges or change. We call this “active engagement”. Research shows that young children with autism who have at least 25 hours of active engagement time a week do better in kindergarten than those who don’t.

Our ESI program uses evidence–based strategies that can be used in everyday activities with your child to promote social communication. It is for children 0-4 years of age with or without a diagnosis of autism. The child and caregiver participate together exploring how to make every moment count!

Most parents and professionals are familiar with motor milestones; however, few parents and professionals know the key milestones of social communication and language development. This 3-week program is designed to introduce families to early communication skills and how to encourage their young child to use those critical early communication skills
